I only use clam for phishing, mailscanner seems to add a warning to 
every link where the link and the label dont match (which is every 
link). Between clam and mailscanners usual spam detection we find no 
live phishing attempts ever get through.

One day i will take the time to learn MailScanner methods more carefully.
